Keep Your Business Compliant: Destroy Your Documents Risk-Free with PROSHRED

In today’s digital society, it can be tough to ensure that all of your personal information remains private. That’s why it is especially important to make sure you dispose of all sensitive documents the right way – whether it’s tax returns, bank account information, social security numbers or even loose documents that containing information like date of birth. If you’re unsure of how to properly destroy sensitive data, aprofessional shredding service like PROSHRED can take care of the process every step of the way.

As with any document destruction service, there are many legal standards that need to be adhered to in order to protect privacy. The PROSHRED® team is well-versed in all the most recent shredding legislation and knows how to properly protect your highly sensitive data.

Whether you are looking for residential or business shredding services, PROSHRED®’s job is to ensure the information given to us is destroyed on-site every time. ISO 9001 certification means PROSHRED maintains upmost awareness of your security needs at all times. Confidentiality is our utmost concern, and when you choose PROSHRED® you can rest easy knowing that your documents will be properly destroyed in a safe and secure manner.

Other legal compliance laws PROSHRED® abides by include HIPAA, GLBA, FACTA and FERPA. HIPAA and GLBA place industry-specific restrictions on privacy standards for health care and financial service organizations. The FACTA law that was established in 2005 by the federal government states, “reasonable measures need to be taken to protect against unauthorized access to or use of the information in connection with its disposal” – meaning that any sensitive material must be shredded so that the information cannot be reconstructed. FERPA is a federal law that is particularly important in the education sector because it protects the privacy of student education records. FERPA allows students and parents to require written consent prior to an educational institution releasing any information from student records.

If a business or organization fails to comply with any of these privacy legislations, there can be serious fines and penalties. To avoid these consequences, it’s important to have a solution in place to dispose of confidential materials. That’s where PROSHRED® comes in. We help our customers meet corporate and legislative privacy requirements by developing first-rate document destruction processes to eliminate any risk of a data breach. After your services are complete, we will give you a Certificate of Destruction to keep for your records.
